Song of the Day 9/1/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Tuesday’s song is #330:

The Dead Boys – All the Way Down

The last song the iconic punk band released – on a 12″ single in 1986 – is one of their best (even if it was totally misproduced), a bitter midtempo cautionary anthem about a “poison lady.” If only the guy who sang it had actually taken the lyrics to heart, he might be alive today. Hard to find – some extensive sleuthing resulted only in this dodgy live clip from Florida, 1988.

  1. Amen – awesome song. I had this on a tape cassette back in 1994. I’ll take your Nirvana and raise you some dead boys.

    RIP Stiv
